The world's favourite prima donna Anna Netrebko had a tremendous success with her first Elvira at the MET

The performance was transmitted live in high definition to movie theatres in the US, Canada and Europe, and broadcasted live on Metropolitan Opera Radio, on Sirius Satellite radio channel 85

Bellini's "bel canto" opera - his last (first performed in 1835) - is enchantingly crazy in plot, superb in musical dramaturgy, and one of the marvels of 19th-century musical theatre

"Looking as graceful as a gazelle and singing as sweetly as a bell struck with a surprising outburst of coloratura, Anna Netrebko sang in I Puritani for the first time at the MET" (The New York Post)

"Anna Netrebko proved herself a master of extreme opera, that volatile mixture of emotional distress and consummate technique. That's what we need divas for" (Newsday NY)

"The prolonged ovation she received after the act II mad scene threatened to stop the performance midway" (The New York Times)
